The Yanks are in…now let’s see em get past the first round! Remember, guys…pitching, pitching, pitching! And A-Rod…hit the damned ball for a change?
I’m also watching (with a healthy dose of schadenfreude) The Mets as they ready themselves to expel a Queens-sized hairball…
A-Rod in the postseason overall (9 series total):
.280/.362/.485, 6 HR, 16 RBI, 4 SB, 37 R
2004 vs the Twins:
.421/.476/.737, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 2 SB, 3 R
2004 vs the Red Sox:
.258/.378/.516, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 8 R
2005 vs the Angels:
The Angels admittedly pitched around him, giving him very little to hit. He still managed a .381 OBP for the series. Only Jason Giambi and Jorge Posada got on base more often.
2006 vs the Tigers:
The team as a whole was shut down by Detroit pitching, going .246/.289/.388 for the series.
My Angels are going to open up a can of whup ass on your Bronx Bombers.
Mike Bloomberg even gave a press release where he questions whether or not the Yankees actually won the 2000 World Series.
